Letter of Intent Funding Opportunity - English Language Learner Healthcare Pathways Grant

The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office in partnership with the California Department of Education is pleased to announce the release of Letter of Intent (LOI) for the English Language Learner Healthcare Pathways Grant. The purpose of the Letter of Intent is to invite identified California Adult Education Program Consortia to participate in the English Language Learner Healthcare Pathways Initiative.



Under the Governor’s Care Economy Workforce Development Package, the Budget Act of 2022-2023 included a one-time $130 million appropriation of Proposition 98 funds to support healthcare-focused vocational pathways for English language learners (ELLs) across all levels of English proficiency as part of the Adult Education Program while addressing regional economic healthcare needs. The intent for this three-year-investment is to support Adult Education programs in developing healthcare-focused vocational pathways, including bridge programs, across all levels of English proficiency.

To maximize legislative intent and program outcomes, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, the California Department of Education, the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, and the California Health and Human Services Agency formed an interagency workgroup and jointly developed a data-driven approach to determine the California Adult Education Program (CAEP) Consortia that are eligible for this investment. This investment is an opportunity for members of a CAEP Consortia, including community college districts and local education agencies, to lead in the development of building adult education healthcare vocational pathways within their respective regions.


Letter of Intent Application Submission

To become a Grantee for this investment, CAEP Consortia identified in the Chancellor’s Office Memo interested in applying must submit a single application of Intent in the Chancellor’s Office NOVA system, which includes the signed Letter of Intent (see Appendix A), a project workplan, budget estimate, and signed Letter of Support from employer and partnerships, on behalf of the consortium and its members by 5:00 p.m., Friday September 8, 2023.


Informational Session

There will be an informational session for this funding opportunity on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. to present an overview of the project and answer questions. Interested parties can register for the event at:
